Who owns corner lot at 23rd Street and Blue Clay Road? It is overgrown and never cleaned up.

Q. Who owns corner lot at 23rd Street and Blue Clay Road? It has been overgrown with weeds at least 10 years and never been cleaned up.

A. Since an exact address was not provided with the question, two of the four corners appear to possibly fit the description.

If you are talking about the land at the corner, designated as 2492 N. 23rd St., it is part of the Con-Way Freight-owned property. The portion near the road falls outside of the company’s fenced facility. That section appears to need mowing and has high weeds.

The current state of the property is not likely to change, however, as the land remains unused by the company and has not been declared a nuisance.

Chris O’Keefe, planning and inspections director for New Hanover County, said, “There are no plans for that intersection currently in the office. The owners are not being fined.”

“The Sheriff has a deputy that enforces our nuisance ordinance,” continued O’Keefe. “If it can be determined that a property is creating a public nuisance, then the deputy can take enforcement action. Generally, we attempt to work with property owners, so that they handle the nuisance without legal action.”

The other corner at that intersection that has high weeds is less likely to be the one you described. It is located along the railroad tracks. It also has no reported future plans on file with the county.


Why do county officials allow abandoned houses in Ogden to stand?

Is there any ordinance concerning vegetation from a vacant lot becoming a nuisance?
